I have just taken my Bowles Mauve cuttings ready for next year. They can get leggy after a while.

If you repot in new compost, don't feed, there will be enough nutrients in the compost for the plants to get going. If you feed as well, they won't know if they are supposed to be growing roots or tops. Just leave and let the roots take of first.

I do mine anytime, I have just done some. Pull off the little rosettes with some root on them, chop off all the green then replant, make sure you water well.

Hi, KG, still havent got the cuttings, I dont usually have anything go missing, I will email you.

I am off to Morisons tomorrow, and will look for your peas, must it be that particular brand, I know someone else on here said they just buy a big bag of those dried peas.

What have I been given?

The little yellow buds at the bottom are spray chrysanths, you may be able to get cuttings from them then overwinter and plant out next Spring.

usually those miniature roses have been forced on for sale purposes, I would treat it as a houseplant, then prune early Spring like any other rose. I have had one for 10 years, and it still blooms.

you can keep the cyclamen going indoors, treat as a house plant.

I have never been let down by J.Parkers, they have lots of offers and free gifts,mine have always been fantastic, the hyacinths are really beautiful. Some will disaggree I suppose, but I have photo's of lovely shows of daffs. 

I do lots of tubs, probably about 40 or so, all Parkers.
